Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! is the darkest, the living-deadliest, scariest--and dare we say most tasteful--collection of zombie stories ever assembled. It’s so good, it's a no-brainer.

 

There is never a dull moment in the world of zombies. They are superstars of horror and they are everywhere, storming the world of print and visual media. Their endless march will never be stopped. It's the Zombie Zeitgeist! Now, with his wide sweep of knowledge and keen eye for great storytelling, Otto Penzler offers a remarkable catalog of zombie literature. Including unstoppable tales from world-renowned authors like Stephen King, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert McCammon, Robert E. Howard, and Richard Matheson to the writer who started it all, W.B. Seabrook, Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! will delight and devour horror fans from coast to coast.

 

Featuring: 

   • Deadly bites

   • Satanic Pigeons

   • A parade of corpses

   • Zombies, zombies, and more zombies

 

Review:

"Penzler's latest monster-sized anthology of monster stories is sure to call attention to the living dead the same way that his Vampire Archives (2009) spotlighted the undead. The 57 stories mostly feature the two main types of fictional zombie: pre — Night of the Living Dead voodoo-resurrected corpses (Manly Wade Wellman's 'Song of the Slaves,' August Derleth and Mark Schorer's 'The House in the Magnolias') and modern Romero-esque brain-eating machines (Robert R. McCammon's 'Eat Me,' Stephen King's 'Home Delivery'). Penzler makes a solid case for some horror classics being zombie tales in spirit if not in specifics, among them Robert E. Howard's Southern Gothic masterpiece 'Pigeons from Hell' and Theodore Sturgeon's backwoods monster tale 'It.' He overreaches somewhat, though, in including H.P. Lovecraft's ghoul-fest 'Pickman's Model' and F. Marion Crawford's haunted-stateroom story 'The Upper Berth.' Zombie fans will find this book controversial as well as comprehensive. (Sept.)"
